Shortlisted in the HOUSING category
Located opposite Lea Bridge station on a plot previously occupied by ageing warehouses, Motion’s expressive architecture, which blends sleek lines with confident placemaking, combines 300 homes with a ground floor gym, office, shop and café as well as new squares and green spaces with informal play, including rooftop gardens and growing plots. Motion heralds the borough’s commitment to transforming Leyton with design-led, needs-focused architecture. Two thirds of its studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, all with large terraces, some with two, are suitable for families.
